Way Out West


January 26th, 2000 ~ Saddle up for a musical romp across mountains and valleys, deserts and and plains as we "cross the deserts fair, and breathe the mountain air." We'll visit with cowboy and Indian poets, meet the inhabitants of a movie set ghost town, and hear music from Sonny Rollins, Judy Collins, Aaron Copland and Patsy Montana.
